Ecoliving in an Energy Efficient Geodesic Dome

Who wouldn’t love to say goodbye to inflated mortgage payments these days? If you’re ready to explore a simpler and more sustainable lifestyle, then, welcome to ecoliving in an energy-efficient geodesic dome – where you’ll find many sizes and floor plans to choose from.

Cost-effective dome shelter kits have many versatile uses. And, one of the benefits that dome dwellers soon discover is that, in addition to a geodesic dome’s energy-efficient design, it’s imbued with the energetic qualities of Nature’s sacred geometry!

Requiring 30% less energy to circulate air, this energy-efficient dome maintains ambient air temperatures inside.

When given an affordable option,without sacrificing those creature comforts we’ve all been accustomed to, who wouldn’t love to trade energyinefficiency for a more energy-efficient ecoliving lifestyle, right? That said, the reality is that the average hard-working home buyer is most likely to encounter conventional home construction – thus, remaining totally unaware of a geodesic dome’s features and benefits.

While it can be said that we’re beginning to see some positive trends towards energy-efficient, ecoliving (aka green building) construction, the price tag often outweighs the benefits – while, the more affordable tiny home designs, like the Boxable, leave one feeling claustrophobic and boxed-in.

About Pacific Domes Geodesic-engineered Frames

Made popular through the pioneering efforts of geodesic dome manufacturers, like Pacific Domes, a portable, prefab Dome Home is an insurance policy in itself! Some irrefutable facts behind this bold statement are the ongoing reports of a geodesic dome being the only structure left standing following the aftermath of Nature’s extremes, such as a hurricane, tornado or earthquake.

Geodesic domes are composed of inter-connected triangles that lends its superior structural strength. Father of the modern geodesic dome, Buckminster ‘Bucky’ Fuller, demonstrated the difference in strength between rectangles and triangles by applying pressure to both structures – the triangle proved to be twice as strong and remained rigid, while the unstable rectangle collapsed.

Buckminster Fuller
Domes are the strongest, lightest and most efficient means of enclosing space yet known to man.” — R. Buckminster Fuller

Buckminster Fuller won an award from the American Architectural Society for inventing the strongest structure known to man. It’s noteworthy, that citing this well-documented data, along with a good set of engineering blueprints, will facilitate in getting your plans approved by building departments.
